After years of "lurking" through hundreds of blogs, and because of my husband's insistence, I finally decided to man up and create my own! I never had the courage to do it because new things scare the crap out me (ask my husband, he knows!).
I am a creature of habit. A creature afraid of failure, disappointment, and embarrassment. The funny thing is that I am not afraid of failing, disappointing, or embarrassing anyone...I am afraid of failing, disappointing, and embarrassing myself! I am my own worst critic. Nothing I do is ever good enough for me. Why? I don't know why. But what I do know is that all of that is about to change. I have put on my big girl panties and decided that enough is enough. I will try new things, fail at them every now and then...but I will not be hard on myself anymore!
I have a collection of recipes that I haven't "gotten around to trying" and many cook books collecting dust. I was scared of having to spend all this money on ingredients and invest all this time on new recipes, just to end up with a mediocre dish that I wouldn't eat. But I won't know that until I try it!
I also have a pretty cool camera that doesn't get as much use as it should. I'm scared of taking crappy pictures with such a fancy shmancy camera, but I guess I can't improve if I don't use it. Who would have thought! Time to snap away and learn to use it!
I guess I should thank my husband for encouraging this :D Without his encouraging words, I'd just be sitting here reading other people's posts and begging my brother and sister to update their blogs :D I know, I'm lame! But I have nothing else to do since I'm a housewife! (<--- I am not unemployed because that would mean I want to work and am actively searching for work, which I'm not! I needed time off!) I'll eventually find a job, but not right now! My job right now is to try new noms with my my husband, and make plenty of goodies for his new work buddies!
